    WHOA! As much as I want all of that stuff and am a fervent supporter of all possible extras on DVD/Blu-Ray releases (especially where Muppets are concerned, of all my interests), let's not go crazy in our language. "Our demands" makes it seem like we're negotiating a hostage situation, and we're the ones with the hostages. Muppet/puppet fans already have enough of a hard time fighting the notion we're all a bunch of crazies.

    YES! YES! YEASSSSSSSS!!!!! I am so happy about this, despite the fact that I'm not going to buy this and that I don't have a blu-ray player. I'm just simply happy about this because it means that a new TMM video is going to be out in stores, and spreading TMM around the general public is always a good thing.

    BUT I CAN'T!!!!!!

    Hey man! I think you missed my (lol) right after the "demands" line. ;) I was making light of it, and honestly; just about every item I listed had been previously hoped for in posts before mine.

    AND... I don't know about you, but I DO belong to the "bunch of crazies" club when it comes to the Muppets. :D

    Oh, I guess I did miss it. Yeah, I was kind of kidding around, too. No problem.

    Just watched the video. I think we would have heard already if it was fake.
    Hey! They used the same music as they did in Green with Envy! It feels like The Muppets all over again. :)

    I love how they included the "nearly" in the advertising. A really nice way for Disney to keep the Muppety touch.

    The "extended" UK version of the Electric Mayhem's intro scene is missing a couple of lines:

    It skips from :sing:: Zoot, sax is your axe,
    to Animal's intro while omitting the following lines:

    :sing:: Uh-oh, Zoot skipped a groove again.
    :flirt:: Wow, like, I'm Janice, I'm lead guitar, for surely.

    If they decide to include an extended version of the Electric Mayhem's intro and Kermit's plot summary with the visual footage, it would probably be best to make a composite scene from the US and UK versions, retaining all the dialogue from the band's intro, along with the flashback clips of Kermit's and Fozzie's adventures.....

    I was thinking the same thing. I hope they do what you suggested.

    Hey Folks,
    I just wanted to pass this on. I created a Facebook fan page to try to show how there is a genuine interest in getting more classic Muppet material on DVD, Blu-Ray and/or streaming video services. I'm very passionate about this, as I imagine (and can see) most of you are, and I've been meaning to get social media involved for some time. With this Muppet Movie Blu-Ray trailer and news, I figured there was no time to lose in making our voices heard, especially for what we'd like to see as extras on this release, in addition to other productions. Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/MoreClassicMuppetHomeVideo . Please Like it, Share it, tweet it, etc. and feel free to share your own suggestions on the page. Thanks, a lot!

    You know everyone talks about commentaries from the people who are still alive, but I something that Disney and a few other have done are retro-commentaries where they take old audio from deceased actors, writers, producers, etc. and add those in. I'd like to see them do a director's commentary commentary that would make use of any Jim interviews that might be in the Henson archives as well as a few others. I believe there are a few hours of the raw interview footage from the old World of Jim Henson documentary. They could use some of the stuff that Jerry J and and Frank did for that and then anything they could find from Jim. You mix in some new commentary from Jim Frawley, Paul Williams and Dave Goelz, you could have a pretty darn good commentary.

    Well, if it's just audio from stuff we've seen, I don't think it's really worthwhile to just tack it on to this. Usually commentary is based on a recording of someone WHILE they're watching, so it relates to whatever's taking place onscreen, hence wanting people who are alive to take part in any commentaries. If there were unreleased commentary-esque audio that could serve the same purpose, relating to specific insights in the making of the film, THAT might be worthwhile. I just don't want something we could have already seen recycled, especially in favor of new commentaries. Just my opinion.

    It popped up on my feed cuz Kevin and Jamie liked it, and I liked it too! :D Good job, I hope Disney pays attention.

    Well, once it gets a decent amount of likes, I'm hoping to get it tweeted to @MuppetsStudio, at the very least. If anyone knows any other way to contact the people in charge of such things, it'd be much appreciated to share such info, so we can pass along the passion, enthusiasm, and suggestions. Thanks!

    So tl;dr but I have been wanting to post this somewhere since I saw it.

    For those of you that have Netflix - The Muppet Movie is streaming. It seems to just be this one movie, which I can only guess is a part of the new Disney library that's being offered.

    Just when I thought things were getting worse, Disney has once again proven that sometimes they do not suck.

    Scratch what I said, info is coming out now.

    Hopefully we won't have to wait 5 months for info about the actual release this thread is about.

    Squigiman Well-Known Member

    I'd be willing to wait that much and a bit longer, if they needed it to give us all the extras we're longing for, rather than just pushing it out and maybe years later when/if there's another new format, giving them on that.
